The whole idear here, was to make adorable little Leprechaun hats by dipping marshmallows attached to Nillas, then wrap the hat with black licorice laces. The problem was my chocolate was entirely too thick (see pic). And the package said that I must only use solid shortening to thin it out. Well, this may come as a surprise to you, but I was fresh out of lard-stufs.
Nina and I figured we'd just make the best out of it.
So we sculpted Leprechaun heads.
The AmeriColor Gourmet Writers were a huge hit.
